Arlene from Israel: Unfolding Nightmare.

On Friday, I wrote about the letter Obama wrote to Jerrold Nadler (D – NY 10th), in which he stated that he considers Israel’s security “sacrosanct” and intends to provide additional military assistance to Israel if the deal passes. At that time I asked, rhetorically, if anyone imagined that we …

Activities today, before Shabbat, leave me with precious little time.

Arlene from Israel -They’re Joking, Right?

Arlene from Israel – Looking Further.

Arlene from Israel: Shifting Focus.

The Iran deal is still there, hanging over us.  But it’s time to consider some other matters. I begin with “Jewish nationalism and ‘the settlements,’” an op-ed by Moshe Dann, in today’s JPost.  It is highly relevant to current issues, as you will see as you read my full posting.  …

Arlene from Israel: Steadfast.

No other way for us to be:  Heads up, eyes on what matters, resolve undiminished. But oh, is it tough these days. ~~~~~~~~~~ I want to return to Obama’s talk of last week, to consider a couple of additional matters. He does not simply provide a position, he attacks. And …

Arlene from Israel: Running Scared.

Perhaps to the casual observer President Obama appears cool and in control – confident of his positions and the success of his “diplomacy.”  But it doesn’t take an advanced degree in psychology to figure out that he’s worried – really, really worried – about what’s going to happen at the …

Arlene from Israel: Reflections on Tisha B’Av.

Above we see stones that were thrown down from the Temple by the Romans at the time of the Destruction 2,000 years ago.  They have been left as a reminder – even as plazas and an archeological park have been built up around the supporting walls of the Temple Mount. …

Editor’s note: This posting contains important information regarding  rallies against the Iran nuclear deal. ~~~~~~~~~~ It is Obama himself who has primary responsibility for having moved – traitorously – to empower a dangerous and radical terrorist entity (and more on this below).

Impossible to have predicted that the current world situation would have devolved into something quite as vile as it has.  The more we know about that Iran deal, the greater our understanding of how truly awful it is. The concessions to Iran have been mind-boggling, but in the end, a …
